jackson. she's the 18th president of rensular polytech nique institute in troy, new york. this is the oldest institute in the united states and it's my great pleasure to announce her. >> good afternoon. you know there's a significant transformation under way globally in the way we make predictions, make products, make connections and ultimately make progress or not. the transformation i'm speaking of is being driven of course by the extraordinarily rapid expansion and availability of data from multiple sources and ever more powerful analytical and computational capacity that is generating yet new information. let me begin quickly with a vignette that may be a harbinger of things to come. as superstorm sandy, i'm sure you know a lot about it, was beginning to gather steam in the caribbean, five days before it slammed into new jersey and new york, u.s. forecasters were predicting a monster storm but uncertain of its path. by most indications this unusually powerful and complex form would graze the coast but move back out into the north atlantic. however there were steady re

change on climate change. lisa jackson announced she will be stepping down. hopes were high for significant progress fighting climate change especially in the form of cap and trade. the e.p.a. is seeing some successes including the ruling greenhouse gases are with the clean air act. her tenure ended with actions to defend them with challenges with republicans in congress and at times, the obama white house. we know one reason the non-white vote was on the rise, it's not just birthrate. the reason is not because the black population is increasing, but because the black turnout rate is increasing. latino and asian voters rate was lower than their share, black voters make up 12% of the eligible electorate and 13% of the actual turn out in november. they use republicans to suppress the vote to energize black voters. want to find out what my guests know now that they didn't? >> the black voting. >> proof we don't coordinate before the show. >> about that, i'll add that it didn't begin with 2008. it began in 2000, the black turnout rate jumped up. it's been increasing since then.
